Not your average cops and robbers action-thriller. Absolutely beautifully photographed which is the norm for Michael Mann films. The opening heist and the midpoint shootout are as riveting today as they were 20 years ago. I saw this film at the theatre 2 days in a row. Deep, deep supporting cast and while it’s noted …
This is not a good movie by any standard, but it constantly makes me laugh shamelessly. The premise is absurd and most of the jokes are just plain stupid, but I can’t help myself. Sandler first major starring role and it remains one of my favourites and a total guilty pleasure.
This is by far, my favourite Travolta film. And yes, I’m putting this above Pulp Fiction. A very faithful adaptation of the Elmore Leonard novel. A sharp script by one of my favourite screenwriters, Scott Frank. An ensemble to die for, but Dennis Farina steals every scene he’s in. So f’ing good, love it.

“I like when the bats flew all through the house.”
Cromwell was devine; the pig was delicious.
I like campy, but this was dreadful. The closest I’ve ever come to walking out of a movie theatre. It’s about 128 minutes too long.
